There will be a special meeting of the Greater Lowell Technical School Committee on Tuesday, February 12,2013, at 5:30 p.m, to be held in the Administrative Conference Room, 250 Pawtucket Boulevard, Tyngsboro, MA.
The purpose of this meeting will be to go into Executive Session to discuss and strategize contract negotiations for non union personnel, specifically the contract for Superintendent of Schools, Mary Jo Santoro, pursuant to MGL c.30A, (a)(2).
This will be the meeting where the Committee as a whole will discuss the pro’s and con’s of offering to negociate a new contract with the Superintendent or decide that they want to open the search up and move in another direction.
Since this is to discuss strategy that if done in public would not be in the best interest of the district, it will be done in Executive session.
In Lowell we have seen both the Manager’s and recently the Auditor’s contract done in the same fashion and I didn’t see any hue and cry not to do those contracts that way.
Whatever the Committee decides, it is still in the hands of the Superintendent to choose if SHE is interested in continuing should they want to offer to go into negotiations to award her a new contract.
To my knowledge she hasn’t publicly stated she does or does not want one.
